$78,000 for new amphitheater in Waverly

WAVERLY (KWWL) -

A $78,000 grant is coming from Vision Iowa for a new amphitheater in Waverly.  But there's more money that still needs raised.

Organizers want to put the new 18-foot by 90-foot amphitheater in Kohlmann Park.  The entire project is estimated to cost around $300,000.  

Organizers say the project is within $50,000 of the total amount.

Sharon Cashman, who helped apply for the Vision Iowa grant, says the awarded money means the bids can begin and construction could be finished by Spring.

The Vision Iowa award is contingent upon finishing the fundraising campaign within 90 days of signing the contract.
